PRE WBN Reception
Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Revolution Books 2425 Channing Way Berkeley, CA 94704


"World Book Night is an annual celebration designed to spread a love of reading and books. To be held in the U.S. as well as the U.K. and Ireland on April 23, 2012. It will see tens of thousands of people go out into their communities to spread the joy and love of reading by giving out free World Book Night paperbacks."

This reception is to celebrate the coming of World Book Night.

Revolution Books is happy to be a distribution point for World Book Night. On April 23 we will join thousands of people in the spirit of spreading the love of reading and spreading the spark that ignites a passion for gaining knowledge. Come to the bookstore on April 16, for readings, discussion and refreshments.

There are big divisions in the world today, and one is the gap between the people who have access to books and those who don’t. Millions of people are locked out – by the capitalist system - of the chance to grapple with the whole sphere of working with ideas. Locked out of the chance to more fully participate—in art, culture, science and society as a whole.  World Book Night is a chance to involve thousands of people in a simple act that defies this set-up.
